I had the good fortune to see performance artist, jack of several trades, a man currently incarnated as Scott Wings (AKA: Darkwing Dubs) as part of a local music festival billed as a comedy rapper. Starting directly after Kudos (see here, here and here) there was a receptive crowd, though I hate to admit the idea of comedic rap had me expecting uncomfortably awkward and likely not laugh out loud funny. Instead it was openly awkward, clever and sharp. I found when I wasn't laughing, I was clapping.
That got me curious enough to see his one-man show Icarus Falling, where he held a full house in thrall for somewhere near an hour. I don't want to spoil any of it, I'd rather just let you go in unprepared and come out smiling.
UPDATE - Local Boy Makes Good Abroad: The reviews and interviews have begun . Icarus Falling is selling out shows nightly and receiving well deserved standing ovations at EdFringe.
